First camera samples from upcoming world thinnest phone Vivo X3 appear

The Vivo X3 is a handset you might not have heard much about, but it is about to become the world’s thinnest handset when it launches. This will allegedly happen soon, and after we saw how it makes slim devices like the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4 look brick thick, we now get to see the first camera samples captured on the Vivo X3.

They are nothing short of good, and that’s an encouraging sign.

Made by Chinese BBK, the Vivo X3 is expected to launch in Asian markets this fall with a 5.6mm super thin body. That would break the record for slimness currently held by the 6.1mm Huawei Ascend P6.

Good quality. Vivid colors and just enough exposure with nice detail.

that looks almost compareable to Lumia 1020, which is double nearly 10 mm lol

Are you kidding me? Comparable to 1020? Oh please. It cant even match my note 2. While it looks impressive in the first look, try zooming it or even taking a good look at it. And you'll see the horror.

Yeah, try to zoom in man.... It's nothing even close to the 1020. And it shouldn't be since it is not a camera phone.

People need to stop looking at the photo viewer preview and actually use the reason for higher MP cameras and use fullscreen. These pictures suck detail wise, in full screen a lot of stuff is blurry and not very detailed. Best example is this one: Thet text on the sign on the left side is barley readable, the sign that is in the back under the Cabanas 2002-2008 is unreadable. This is not even close to DLSR/ every other flagship.

This is ugly, physically and metaphorically. I'm tired of sacrificing or cutting even with battery life because of a trend no one but tech reviewers hyped up into reality. I don't care if the phone is 9-9.5mm thick. That's not bad at all. I just want a minimum of 3,500 quality mAh cells in my phone so that it can power through the entire day.

Very good but still not great as Lumia 1020, Iphone 5 and Galaxy S4 in details.
